I was very impressed at Dan Brown's ability to put a whole puzzling conspiracy together and actually make it work. And I was confused at why did people make such a fuss about it.

To be honest, the book did not change my beliefs at all. It was simply a well-written book to me.

I blame the over-zealous religious fanatics, those who believe or don't believe in Christian beliefs. The book is place in the Fiction section of the bookstores for a reason.

I also agree. Besides, practically the entire story rests upon a foundation of "false facts", which Dan Brown had apparently claimed to be "true". As well, he also states that he himself is a Christian, and this book was written for a fictitious form of entertainment.

Indeed. All this controversy is simply luring curious people into reading or seeing The Da Vinci Code. There's really no need to be so upstarted by it.

There's no sure way yet to prove which side is telling the truth. There are so many debates that go on out there, proving or disproving Brown's claimed "facts."

I have watched a documentary that says that the priory was just an organization founded in the 1960's or 70's by a certain man named Plantard, as one of his henchmen confessed. It also says that it has absolutely no ties to the Templars.

And there was also one documentary that said that the dead sea scrolls really did not have anything to do with the bible.

It's really up to us who or what to believe, but it clearly does not get the taste of religious folks.
